Chelsea: Fans criticise Marcos Alonso after clumsy tackle vs Man Utd

Chelsea fans have been critical of their left-back Marcos Alonso after he conceded a first-half penalty during their 2-1 defeat against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

The Spaniard came under fire after bringing down Red Devils winger Daniel James during the first period, leaving Marcus Rashford with the honour of giving their opponents the lead.
